    SFMM | West Coast Racers | Premier Quad Launch Möbius Sky Rocket

    I'm not jumping for joy just yet. It's soft opening for passholder previews on the listed days. Any poor sap that buys a regular ticket won't be able to ride until January. Based on that, I'm considering it a 2020 opening, which is just hysterical.

    New Jersey | American Dream | Mall/Nickelodeon Theme Park

    I honestly thought it was sped up a bit during my first view but that doesn't appear to be the case. The exit to the second inversion really has a whip to it as the train levels out, and that turntable is quite swift.

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi

    Topping out any structure with a tree or flag adorned on the highest point is a widespread construction tradition. Why? Honestly I'm not sure, but it's been around for centuries.

    SFMM | West Coast Racers | Premier Quad Launch Möbius Sky Rocket

    C'mon, fellas. I KNOW y'all wanna buy one of these: (Yes, that is an actual OEM paint color)

    SFMM | West Coast Racers | Premier Quad Launch Möbius Sky Rocket

    Wow...they might actually be pushing to get the ride opened in this calendar year after all... I kinda hope they don't succeed because the memes will be glorious, but it is what it is I guess.

    SeaWorld San Diego replacing Wild Arctic in 2021

    This will be their third coaster (fourth if you're daft) in four years. I'd say it'd be worth a trip out there pretty soon but if they keep building coasters at this rate, who knows!

    Tidal Wave at Six Flags St. Louis Removal

    SFFT replaced their boat ride with Wonder Woman and SFOT is replacing theirs with Aquaman. There are plenty of feasible replacements out there - it's really just a matter of what each park eventually chooses.

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    I can rattle off numerous major attractions that had significant downtime in their initial year of operation, but those rides didn't have six launches, a reverse section, a drop track, tons of dynamic theming that requires train position input, and operated a dozen trains simultaneously...

    Longchong Scenic Spot To Install Pretty Insane Thrill Rides

    The interwebs saw a few too many near-carbon copies of those SLCs and now calling everything a knockoff is overused. I saw Intamin's wing Rider and B&Ms wing coaster mentioned - yes, they're similar products within the same competitive set, but B&M definitely did not rip off Intamin's design...

    New Jersey | American Dream | Mall/Nickelodeon Theme Park

    Update: looks like the full admission price has raised to $60, but they introduced a $35 twilight admission which will get you in for the last three hours of operation: I saw a Reddit thread where a visitor claimed (with...

    Welcome to the forums! There is already a discussion for Kings Dominion speculation here:

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    There seems to be a healthy mix of rides among both bolt patterns. I didn't look at every single invert on RCDB, nor did every ride have conclusive photos, so I cannot quite pinpoint a grouping of rides, but Silver Bullet and Black Mamba feature six bolts across, yet Patriot features five, so...
